The first successful comic strip specifically set in the South was Joe Palooka, created by Alfred Gerald Caplin in 1933. Caplin, who later abbreviated his name to Al Capp, was a young artist from New Haven, Connecticut. A year later, he began his own strip, titled Li’l Abner, which gave him enormous fame and fortune. That same year, another important comic strip about the South was launched by Billy DeBeck of Chicago: Snuffy Smith. This chapter examines the ways in which the once enormously popular comic strips Li’l Abner and Snuffy Smith blended research, conjecture, and stereotype in their representations of Appalachian culture. It also considers how such representations helped shape the national audience’s imagination of the South.
